Default Suggestive Nissan ads pulled off air

Japanese carmaker Nissan said Friday it has pulled a raunchy commercial starring "Sex and the City" actress Kim Cattrall from New Zealand television after complaints over its content.

Cattrall, who plays sex-obsessed, promiscuous Samantha Jones in the hugely successful U.S. series, appears in the ad purring with excitement about Nissan's new sedan.

Why didn't you tell me it was so big, I just wasn't prepared for it?" she gushes. "The all-new Nissan Tiida makes you feel really, really, really good inside."

Good. While I was in NZ (studying advertising incidentally), I found most of their ads basically relied on either sex or fart jokes. Then they put the logo at the end and hope to win awards.

It's about time they changed that.
